Strengthening and stretching your limits

Training with weights can help you to build stronger muscles, and the power
from your pumped muscles can improve your overall triathlon performance
and reduce your risk of injury. Don’t worry — you don’t need to spend hours
in a gym. Performing two exercises, twice a week, for each of your major muscle
groups — chest, back, biceps, triceps, core, hamstrings, and quadriceps — can
yield dividends.
Treat your working muscles right with some gentle stretches, too. Improving
your flexibility will ease sore muscles, especially in your neck, back, and
shoulders after a long bike ride.

  1. Holly,Thank you for doing these movies! When my deughtar saw me using cans for weights, sitting at my desk she chuckled at me! She went to bed before she saw me get to this difficult part with the squats! I’m not worried, she’ll see them tomorrow! If she’s going to laugh, I’ll get her to give it a try! I know for a fact this is hard work! I look forward to being able to do these exercises!!!LindaLinda G. Cox recently posted..
